What is the most up to date technology to improve severe rolling acne scars?

Acne Scarring -- Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Fillers Like Bellafill, Subcision and Eclipse Micropen
New Treatments & Devices May Not Necessarily Be Better, But Are Often More Expensive For Treating Acne Scars
Subcision, on the other hand, is a proven method, with an over two decades old track record for treating depressed scars of all kinds, including rolling scars from acne. It is relatively inexpensive, quick to perform, and engenders little to no significant downtime.
Medical microneedling is another relatively inexpensive technique with over fifteen years of history behind it that is useful for blending the tone and texture of the treated areas with the surrounding normal skin. It, too, gives rise to little or no significant downtime.
The following was written in the July/August 2015 edition of one of our trade journals, Modern Aesthetics:
"Devices in many categories--lasers, light sources, ultrasound, radiofrequency, and combinations of those--are now user-friendlier and widely available at both physician offices and non-physician spas. Patients hear about them from the media and ask for them by name. Unfortunately, the results don't always keep up with the hype."
So, be cautious when considering to spend for one of the "next best thing" devices that seem to come along virtually every day.
